    I look for them to increase. Good clean ones are getting hard to find.

    the older ones..05 and 06 are probably at their low point
    They will fall more slowly now...than in their first 4 years
    I do agree clean ones are getting hard to find

    BUT....its that law of economics
    Because of the way the cars fall in value some that buy it after 5 years cant afford the repairs..or wont put the money into a car that is not worth more than the STS's are...unless its just to keep the engine going

    Look at the prices( and typical condition of 6 + year old cars) of the older STS...or the DTS

    Same pattern with the 2005+ STS...and will be with the latest DTS as well

    The STS, at least in this version, loses value faster than a digital camera.

    How do you figure? 05 and 06, maybe, but how do you see a low mile 2007+ depreciating that fast? This isn't a Range Rover.

    Re: will sts prices drop?

    I think the used car market is entering an interesting period. Manufacturers are building fewer cars equipped as many buyers want. To get bigger cars, owners are already in trucks & SUV's. As CAFE standards get more strict, I expect larger & more powerful used cars & trucks to hold their values better than otherwise expected.

    I'm not shopping but I am watching used STS prices stay well above what I paid in 2008. Our cars are working fine and we still have a year or more of warranty coverage. There's nothing on the market today urging me to trade. Most of what I see is small, cheap, underpowered crap or way-overpriced.

    IMHO, clean & well-cared for STS's have a lot of value.

    Excellent point. I paid 19K for 3 year old STS in '09.

    Yesterday the same dealer had 4 year old STS with more miles listed for $24K.

    I would also suggest because they are getting into a price range that's affordable by more people, a demand is created that stabilizes and or pushes prices up. That won't last forever.

    In a year, I wouldn't hate trading to a '09 or '10 STS if I could find a well-cared-for & loaded 1SG.
